Publisher's Summary

A heart-wrenching, poignant and totally unforgettable tale of a young woman who must finally face up to the secret she has hidden for a lifetime.  

1943, England: On a foggy night during the blackout, 25-year-old May Robinson watches in horror as her mother, Ivy, is tragically killed. Heartbroken, May is not sure she has the strength to harbour the secret she has kept for so many years - a secret that her mother devoted her life to hiding and that would tear their broken family even further apart. Vowing to make her mother proud, May trains to be a nurse at the local hospital, against a backdrop of wailing air-raid sirens and the eternal drone of enemy planes. 

Tending to wounded, ashen-faced soldiers and fighting to save lives, May encounters Richard Bentley, who works at the hospital. But why isn’t he fighting in the war like thousands of other brave young men?  

In the darkest of days, amongst death and despair, May and Richard are beacons of hope for one another. But in a perilous time of such uncertainty, and as each longs to escape their past, how well do they really know each other? And when the shocking truth of May’s secret comes to light, can their love survive the impossible?

Another wonderful story by Shirley Dickson!

As soon as I start a new book of Shirley’s I enjoy it so I can’t stop listening. Of course then I then don’t want it to end and want more. Now I look forward to her next book.

Loved this book, it relaxed me in this time where we all need to find relaxation!

I would give this book top marks, a bit predictable but nonetheless a very good read!
The narrator, Joan Walker made this story even better, her accents and story telling were excellent!

Wonderful story

I thoroughly enjoyed this book like all good books it was a very well described situation very graphic but as soon as it came to the last chapter it was very abruptly ended and that always disappoints me. One day one of the authors whose books are going to surprise me by finishing the book with more of a expressive ending. But that being said I would recommend this this book to anyone as Shirley is a brilliant Authoress.
